The Consequences Of A Domestic Violence Conviction Are Serious

Have you been charged with domestic violence or served with a restraining order? Facing such an allegation can leave in its wake damage to your reputation, livelihood, and personal relationships, and even the loss of your job. While such turmoil can be overwhelming, we can help. Facing the threat of such devastating charges can cause unimaginable anxiety and fear, as well as the threat of long-lasting and damaging character assassination. The social stigma of being charged with domestic violence — spousal abuse or assault — whether proven or not, ruins even the most misunderstood accused of this crime.

Types Of Domestic Violence Charges

While there may have been a serious misunderstanding, even a distortion of the facts or a deliberate false accusation in some cases, you could still face alienation in your community, adverse reactions from colleagues and clients, and even the loss of good friends. It's imperative that you seek the advice of counsel, especially one with a track record in this area of the law.

There are different types of domestic violence allegations. Most involve a spouse, but charges can also be brought against you where it involves the alleged mistreatment of a cohabitant, an elder, or a child.

Domestic violence charges are typically filed in cases of stalking and physical, verbal, emotional, and financial abuse. The most common types of domestic violence charges include:

  • Physical abuse
  • Control
  • Sexual abuse
  • Emotional abuse and intimidation
  • Neglect
  • Verbal abuse such as coercion and threats
  • Financial abuse

If you have been charged with any of the above crimes and/or you have been served with a restraining or protective order, you could be facing devastating consequences without an experienced attorney on your side.
